I 1869 kom jernbanen til Aalborg, dette fik kammerherren på Birkelse Hovedgaard til arbejde for en jernbane til Fjerritslev. I 1874 lykkedes det kammerherren at samle så megen støtte til, at bygge en jernbane nord for fjorden. Så man afholdte et orienterende møde på Hotel Phønix i Aalborg, her nedsatte man en komite der skulle arbejde videre med planerne. I 1897 indviede man den vestlige del af jernbanen mellem Fjerritslev og Frederikshavn via Nørresundby.

Birkelse Station var tegnet af P. Poulsen i 1896 den kostede 10.700 kroner at bygge, foruden perronsporet var der et krydsningsspor med tilhørende jordperron, desuden et ladespor, der førte over i et stikspor, som igen var forsynet med enderampe. Ved hovedsporet lå der også et pakhus.

Stationsbgygningen er i dag elforretning, men man kan stadig fornemme stationen, som ligger på disse koordinater: N57 08.919, E009 40.816.

Birkelse by hed oprindelig Vedsted, men stationen blev opkaldt efter Birkelse Hovedgaard, som en ”tak” til kammerherren for sin indsats for jernbanens tilblivelse. Landsbyen ændrede langsomt navn, men kirken hedder stadig Vedsted Kirke og man kan endnu høre lokale kalde byen for Vedsted.

Hvis du efter af havde fundet cachen, har lyst til at læse mere om Fjerritslev – Frederikshavn Jernbane er der udgivet en rigtig god bog om banen. Den hedder ”Fjerritslevbanen – dens forløb gennem tid og landskab” er skrevet af Arnold Andersen og udgivet af forlaget Nord – press.



In 1869 the railway came to Aalborg, this was chamber master at Birke Manor to work for a rail to Fjerritslev. In 1874 they managed chamber master to gather as much support to build a railway north of the fjord. At where held a briefing session at the Hotel Phønix in Aalborg, here they set up a committee which would work on the plans. In 1897 inaugurated the western railway between Fjerritslev and Frederikshavn through Nørresundby.

Birklse Station was designed by P. Poulsen in 1896 cost 10,700 dollars to build, in addition to the platform track, there was a trail crossing and the land on the platform, also leave traces that led into a connector trail, which in turn was fitted with end ramp. The main track was also a warehouse.

The railway station is today shop, but you can still feel the station, located at these coordinates: N57 08.919, E009 40.816.

Birkelse town was originally Vedsted but the station was named after Birke Manor as a "thank you" to chamber master for her commitment to the railways being. The village's name changed slowly, but the church is still Vedsted Church and you can still hear the local call it Vedsted.
